Faratronic C3E series: High Voltage DC-link Capacitor. Suitable for use in traction drives for railway.

DC link capacitors are used for balancing the variation of power between the different DC power rails in the system. These variations can occur in case of activity from eighter the input stage (pantograph or battery) or the output stage, motor and wheels. It is a vital “Link” for stabilizing the ripple generated by the…

Technical Blog: Class X and Class Y capacitors

Many safety regulations mandate that Class X or Class Y capacitors must be used whenever a “fail-to-short-circuit” could put humans in danger, to guarantee galvanic isolation even when the capacitor fails. Lightning strikes and other sources cause high voltage surges in mains power. Safety capacitors protect humans and devices from high voltage surges by shunting…
